From the minute we entered until we left enthusing about the wonderful food ( don't miss the poached pears) the staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The surroundings and decor minimal but pleasing and very relaxing. A don't miss if you're in Stranraer.

This was the second time we’d eaten here, it was a Sunday and they have the same menu all day and it was pretty good.

Best fillet of beef with a wonderful sauce. Sea bream wonderful. Charming front of house staff. Diningroom staff very considerate of my elderly guest and produced a cushion to heighten the chair. I will be back very soon!,,

Thank you for your review I am pleased you enjoyed your meal. To clear up your point our menu states that our Seafood Pancake is served with potatoes and vegetables. There was no extra charge for them (pity you didn't have your bill)and we may have overdone the portion size and for that we are very very sorry! More

Could not fault the experience. Knowledgeable staff, excellent lounge area and dining room. Views to die for, and the food was first class. So good, we went back the following Sunday. Highly recommended.
